Missing teeth are perhaps the most obvious and challenging obstacle to a beautiful smile. If you have one or more missing teeth, Aptos dentists Drs. Jason and Allyson Drew of Drew Dental can show you how dental implants can solve your problem permanently. For tooth replacement, there simply is no solution that is more durable or more lifelike than a custom-designed dental implant.
A single-tooth implant replaces each missing tooth with its own titanium post and a custom-made crown. This popular dental implant solution mimics the size and shape of the natural tooth, and creates a secure tooth replacement that permanently fuses (osseointegrates) with the jawbone. Tooth root implants can also be used to support a partial or full-arch denture when several are placed along an arch of missing teeth.
All-on-4 was developed as a way to best restore the full arches of the upper and lower jaws. This technique provides our patients with a fixed solution that is secured by as little as four dental implants – all on the same day. All-On-Four Dental Implants are the perfect option for patients who have or need dentures or need complete restorations on the upper or lower teeth.
People with several or all missing teeth understand the struggle with dentures slipping during speaking or loosening while laughing or sneezing. An overdenture is a dental prosthetic that eliminates the problems associated with traditional dentures.
An over denture can ultimately improve a person’s quality of life by acting as natural teeth.
A locator retained overdenture is a removable prosthesis placed in the mouth containing replacement teeth, mounted in a base made of pink resin to create an exact fit over your existing gums. It securely snaps in place using button-like fittings called locators.
The LOCATOR FIXED™ is a full-arch solution which is said to be less invasive, less costly, and requires less bone reduction. Aptos Dentists Drs. Jason and Allyson Drew offer removable overdentures followed by a FIXED full-arch by switching out LOCATOR inserts and housings in the existing prosthesis then fabricating a new prosthesis later.
CONUS Overdenture is a new fantastic treatment option for people missing all of their teeth in their upper or lower jaw. It is the perfect “in-between” option of the “snap-on” removable overdenture and the “fixed” hybrid. Through the use of precisely milled ” friction connectors”, patients receive a denture with the benefits of BOTH FIXED and REMOVABLE solutions! The tight precision fit delivers the comfort, function, and confidence of a fixed denture, while still being able to remove it for easier hygiene and maintenance.
If you have dealt with a missing tooth for years, you may be wondering why it is so important to fill that space now. When considering a tooth replacement solution, keep in mind that dental implants are the only comprehensive solution since they address both the visible missing tooth and the missing tooth root under the gum. The presence of a replacement tooth root not only anchors the new tooth in place, it also protects against bone loss since it is seated into the jaw bone. And the sooner you replace a missing tooth, the less likely your natural teeth are to shift out of place and create an unhealthy bite.
Dental implants are a long-term investment. Unlike other cosmetic smile treatments that may need to be redone after several years, dental implants can last a lifetime if they are well cared for.
